These days many Japanese poeple enjoy Halloween in their own way.
Although I've never participated in any Halloween parties or events, I make a point of watching Tim Burton's THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS at Halloween.
The film was first released in the U.S. 19 years ago, and it came to Japan in the following year.
This is a stop motion musical fantasy film.
A stop motion is a kind of animation technique to make a phisically manipulated object appear to move on its own.
Thanks to the long-term effort making the film, we can feel something warm from what each puppet seems to be alive.
When you go to Disneyland, you'll see lots of characters in the Haunted Mansion attraction called "Haunted Mansion Holiday." ("Haunted Mansion Holiday Nightmare" in Tokyo)
Have you see this film before?
If you haven't, I'd say it's time you've begun!!
